The PR-LE MY is a Limited Edition model with a classic time-tested concept with a vintage parlor-sized body, an evocative dragonfly inlay, and a warm sunburst finish. This amazing instrument features the highest quality Master Grade Adirondack spruce top and Myrtlewood back and sides for a bright and clear yet smooth and warm sound.
Projecting the 1930’s vintage concept, the body is the small and intimate parlor size with the 12th-fret neck-body joint for a classic full-bodied sound. Ideal for fingerstyle playing, the sound is articulate and bright with just the right amount of warmth. The downsized body makes the guitar easy to play even for players with a small physique.
SOLID ADIRONDACK SPRUCE TOP (MASTER GRADE)
For the Limited Edition models, only the highest grade woods (Master Grade) were used and Adirondack Spruce fits the bill with its strength and extreme dynamics and sensitivity. Even at full volume, you will still be able to hear smoothness in the tone without losing any definition.
SOLID MYRTLEWOOD BACK & SIDES
Fitting for a Limited Edition, the back and sides are of Master Grade solid Myrtlewood for a bright yet smooth and warm sound. Clear and powerful, it emphasizes the high-mids for excellent articulation. Myrtlewood’s figuring gets better and better with higher grades and this model features the highest grade possible.
L.R. BAGGS® ANTHEM
The L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup/preamp system delivers the pure acoustic vibrations of the instrument to the amplifier and PA without any coloration. Unneeded feedback can also be easily and effectively controlled through minimalistic controls that do not interfere with the look of the instrument.
The evocatively striking dragonfly inlays consist of warm colors utilizing genuine woods and natural abalone, resulting in a classic high-end look.
GOLD LOCKING TUNERS
These locking tuners are of extremely precise 21:1 gear ratio and have a solid yet smooth feel while providing surprisingly good tuning stability.
EBONY BRIDGE & FINGERBOARD
For the bridge and fingerboard, the dense and hard Ebony wood was used for strength as well as contributing a luxurious feel and a powerful full-bodied sound.
DOUBLE-LOCK NECK JOINT
By combining the traditional dovetail neck joint method with bolt-on construction, this guitar’s exclusive Double-Lock Neck Joint increases the transfer of the vibrational energy between the body and the neck as well as greater structural integrity and stability.
Besides the truss rod, another method of reinforcement has been added to further improve the neck’s stability and strength. This method greatly enhances the neck to withstand instability caused by the climate and humidity changes.
VINTAGE LACQUER FINISH
To maximize the wood’s ability to vibrate without hindrance, a special vintage lacquer finishing method was used in which the finish is naturally permeated along the grains. This is a high-end finishing method that requires a great deal of experience and expertise and which allows the woods to vibrate to their full potential.
